Shine

You have a radiant inner light

    "I was sculpting this piece at the time of the Winter Olympics. I was inspired by the strength and perseverance of young female competitors in figure skating, snowboarding, skiing... their confidence exudes with every gesture and movement, literally shining with happiness and pride. We all have the capacity to shine from within, so I wanted this figure to be a reminder of our own inner strength.

    "Shine could be a congratulatory piece for a milestone reached, or a healing piece to show support and belief in someone. I wanted the form to be visually uplifting... a little reminder of personal goals, met. I embellished the surface with gold to suggest inner light and energy."

    Shine

    Submitted by Patricia Berger in Newark, OH, October 2016

    The most meaningful piece to me is SHINE. I lost my husband 10 years ago and was raising a grandson with emotional problems. I had been struggling for 9 years financially, physically and emotionally. I just walked through my days but with no real joy. One day I decided I needed to make some changes. I started dieting, going to the gym and dyed my hair purple. The more changes I made the more alive I felt. Right at that time a friend of 62 years sent me SHINE as a gift. It spoke to me as I felt I was coming out of a fog and once again shining.

    Shine

    Submitted by Erin in Arizona, October 2016

    I was diagnosed with leukemia three years ago and had my second stem cell transplant last year. While in the hospital, I wasn't able to see my then three year old daughter because I was immunocompromised. She has been my reason to fight and to live during this trial and as soon as I saw Shine, it reminded me so much of her in both appearance and spirit. I kept her (Shine) with me throughout my hospital stay and she now sits on my nightstand to always remind me of the strength of both my daughter and myself.

    Submitted by Alisa Gunter in Illinois, October 2016

    "Shine" is my new favorite. She inspires me to look into my self and into others, and see what lies beneath! It is not just what is on the outside that makes us beautiful, it is from deep in the soul. From USA, Illinois

    Shine

    Submitted by Bonnie in USA, October 2016

    (One of) my favorite piece is "Shine" because it reminds me that i have a great inner light and i have to show it more, give this light to others, share it with my beloved ones; it reminds me of my grandma that passed away just three weeks ago and that is my endless light that will always follow me. It also reminds me to go always on till i reach the top, always trying to reach the better things.

    Shine #27367

    Submitted by Julia in Sea Isle City, New Jersey, August 2016

    It was my boyfriend's mom's birthday and I noticed she colleced these angel figurines. I went to the store and bought her one and she was so excited when she opened it. A few days later I went to visit my aunt who had been battling cancer for 13 years and had taken a turn for the worse. My family took turns spending time with her, helping to take care of her, and just enjoying time with her. I noticed she had a whole bunch of Willow Tree angels as well and I told her how I had just bought one. I noticed she had this big one with blue on the dress and it was gorgeous. I said "Wow where did you get that one!" and she said, "Don't touch it! I had to track that one down and it took me months to get it, it's my favorite one." Sadly my aunt passed just two days before my birthday and it has now turned into 4 months later. My cousin called and said she was giving away some of the Willow Tree angels and we could pick one if we liked, but the blue "Shine" angel was off limits, which I sadly understood and agreed. Today when I got home from work my boyfriend's mom told me she had a surprise for me. She handed me a box and explained she was in the mall, saw the Willow Tree angels, thought of my aunt, then saw a spark of color. Never had she seen one with coloring before except for the picture I sent her of my aunt's. There was one left and she knew it was a sign from my Aunt Cindy and she bought it for me. Now I have my own collection of Willow Tree Angels, "Loving Angel" which is my Aunt Cindy's and "Shine" from my boyfriend's mom because she knew how much it meant to me because it was my Aunt's favorite and we were very close. Thank you for sending me a small memory of my sweet aunt when creating this beautiful angel. It means the world to me.

    Submitted by Neha Saravanan in India, January 2016

    Hello Ms.Susan This is Neha,India. When we toured Europe during Christmas'15 we visited Black Forest,Germany and there at a shop with the Cuckoo Clock Factory we were glancing at all these amazing articles and antiques in the same shop, but something caught my eyes. It was a showcase presented with Willow Tree Collections only, and I showed it to my mother who was attracted to it too. Then while thinking about buying one of the pieces, we were interested in almost all the pieces, but something struck at us deeper and emotionally. It was this Signature Collection-Shine. And when we looked at the little display card on it's side saying 'you have a radiant inner light' we were absolutely sure about buying it. One of the reasons for totally being into it was that they all had a shaded visage which I interpret as reflecting your own face on the idol. It was not fixed up on any one face only, which I must acknowledge as one of the distinctions of The Willow Tree Collections and also as a viewpoint in light of a good gifting idea or a hobby idea for collecting more and more. And I am definitely planning to share about Willow Tree to all my friends and family.My mom and I are sure about venturing more into the Willow Tree tradition.Thank you so much for bringing up such an initiative and for actually being able to materialize it too. yours faithfully Neha

    Shine

    Submitted by Veyatie in Maine, April 2015

    Recently I was offered a new job within my company which meant I would be leaving my current office and relocating to one nearby. I have always found there are connections made with people you work with every day. One co-worker describes it as 'One Big Disfunctional Family' that still respects and cares about each other. I was buying thank you cards for my co-workers and stumbled upon a Willow Tree display at the store I was at. My eyes immediately went to 'Shine'. The raised hand reminded me of always reaching for new knowledge and in the last few years or so I have made personal strides personally and emotionally. I feel more like I am coming into my own more than ever! My co-workers gave me a generous card with some money and gifts. I had one stipulation with my gift - spend it on myself. They knew I was thinking of what I could get for my daughter or other family members, or to pay on a bill. I remembered the statue and it was perfect. 'Shine' made me smile; it reminded me I truly can do anything I set myself to and that there are people there to help me achieve my goals. I shine because I am enriched by everyone I know.

    Shine

    Submitted by Erin in United States, April 2015

    I was recently diagnosed with relapsed leukemia, and while browsing my local Hallmark store for a thank you gift for my caregiver, I spotted Shine. She perfectly embodies the "tadaaaa" persona of my three year old down to the same hair cut and color. The blue on the dress even matches her eyes. I had to have her- it was like she was created just for me! I have countless photographs that I will hang in my hospital room, finger paintings and crayon drawings, but none capture the spirit of my girl quite like this piece. I'll have her right at my bedside in the hospital when I can't have my daughter with me.
